PASSAGE THEATRE POSTPONES SOLO FLIGHTS: “MOTHER (AND ME)” TO ITS 2020-2021 SEASON

Passage Theatre is monitoring the ongoing developments of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Due to the extended stay-at-home orders, Passage has postponed its Solo Flights presentation of Mother (and me), written and performed by Melinda Buckley (left) until the winter of 2021.

Passage was hoping to present Mother (and me) in June after its first postponement; however, due to the current global climate, Passage has decided that it is best to postpone the show to its 2020-2021 season. New dates will be announced this summer. Unfortunately, tickets purchased for the June 2020 performances are not transferrable to next season. Ticket holders can either request a refund by June 30, 2020, or they can kindly donate the cost of their ticket back to Passage.

Passage’s Artistic Director, Ryanne Domingues, says, "In light of the current environment surrounding COVID-19, we thought it best to postpone the show in the interest of our artists, staff, and patrons. We are still looking forward to having the incredible Melinda Buckley at the Playhouse, and can't wait to share the exciting programming that we have in store for our 2020-2021 Season."

In the following months, Passage's staff will be working safely from home and keeping busy with the following commitments: fundraising to close the projected income gap caused by the loss of revenue, continuing to pay its staff for as long as possible, providing payments to artists whose work has been canceled or postponed, planning for our upcoming 2020/2021 season of productions, and finding new ways to connect to its audience through online videos, updates, and discussions.

It is important for everyone to take care of themselves and stay informed by choosing reliable sources for information. Visit the CDC’s website for more COVID-19 details and developments at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
